My brother was going to be named Alexis after this whiny chick I hated and I cried when he turned out to be a boy

If all our favourite actors have favourite actors, is there some Alpha actor at the top of the pyramid?

Figured out how to accurately translate human to cybertronian names. First five people to send me a name get mecha names and a short description of frame type to go with!

PRAISE BE

When I worked at a fast food restaurant, I did a social experiment.
One day, I asked “do you want a girl toy or a boy toy?” No one went against gender roles.
The next day, it was “do you want a doll toy or a car toy?” Boys got dolls. Girls got cars.
Vocabulary is important.


Wasn’t this because of bronies?

Instead of calling girls thirsty, we should call them D Hydrated.

The future is now

We can’t because even though it sounds like ‘dehydrated’ which would work, D-hydrated just means she has a healthy saturation and does not require a higher level of D

Oh my god, this one time in metalwork some girls and I were talking about the rings we were making and it turned into how we all didn’t want to get married and how we all just wanted to stay single and maybe have a casual partener instead and halfway through I turned to look behind me and there was this group of dudes looking like they just saw a unicorn and one of them was like “I have never heard of a girl that didn’t want to get married” and my friend just said “You must not have met many girls then,” and sweet Jesus it was perfect.

My brother was eating a plain pepporoni pizza and started screaming for milk because it was ‘Too spicy’.
I was like, “Well, I guess we’ve got a white kid here,” and my dad got really angry and said “That was very racist of you.”
Dad.
You are Irish. Mom is Scottish. He wears SPF 60 just to go outside. He IS white.

Girls pose by a jail that recalls the witch trials of 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts. Photo taken in 1945.

I recently learned that the water in Salem was contaminated with the fungus from which LSD is derived and a legitimate theory for the whole thing is that everyone in the town was tripping balls 

This might be the greatest thing ive ever seen on the internet

We did a whole massive thing on this in history. I believe the fungus in question is called Ergot and it’s terrifying. It makes your muscles spasm so when they had seizures that was the reason, not because they were possessed. One woman had to be strapped to her bed, she was seizing so bad. And, like ‘theybuildbuildings’ said, it had the same effects as LSD; as soon as you touch it, let alone consume it, it messes with your entire system. The worst thing is, you practically always had a bad trip. Many complained about bugs crawling under their skin or monsters emerging from the shadows to scratch and bite at them until they were screaming. It was a horrendous thing and the worst part is, Ergot is still around. It grows on crops and, if your wheat isn’t properly treated, it can be eaten and you’ll most likely experience the same as the women of Salem. 

god i love history

Except that:
Ergotism was well known by the time of the trials, the symptoms probably would have been identified. It was considered a terrifying disease for over a thousand years, known as “holy fire” or “St. Andrew’s Fire”. The most telling sign of ergotism, gangrene, wasn’t even present. It is uncommon for ergotism to be marked solely by convulsions.
Ergotism didn’t poison the water supply. If it had been a threat to the town it would have been through consumption of rye.
You’re underestimating the importance of William Griggs, the town doctor who diagnosed the so-called witchcraft. It wasn’t until after he diagnosed Betty that the accusations and claims from the girls started.
The girls were described as “hale and hearthy” outside of court. Ergotism wasn’t called “the holy fire” because it was mild. It was awful, with rates of fatality between 10-40%. Little was mentioned of vomiting, gastrointestinal issues, skin color change, chills, headaches…. The basic symptoms.
To disregard the unbelievable affect of class and gender on the Puritans is shocking. A wild fungus may seem more interesting, but it disregards prejudice, religion bases psychosis, misogyny, and hate for outsiders that permeated Salem. 
Everyone accused was a social pariah. The only exceptions to this are the people who questioned the trials. This is not by accident. Sarah Good was a beggar, Giles Corey was generally distrusted and had previously been accused of murder, Tituba was a black woman who spoke of omens and evil, Martha Carrier had been accused of witchcraft only two years prior and had inherited wealth despite patriarchal norms, Sarah Osbourne was challenging property laws and social norms, Margaret Scott was a poor widow who had been disliked for as long as 20 years, and so on and so on. They struck out against people their families were suspicious of.
These little girls were under tremendous stress. They could celebrate no holidays, express no strong emotions, no dancing or music, no toys, suffered rampant abuse espoused as discipline, and lived under the constant overwhelming fear of Hell. The older generation at that time was bemoaning the youths’ lack of piety and dedication to Christ. In other words, the girls were miserable and well aware that according to their parents only Hell awaited their misbehavior. They were trying to survive in an adult world not meant, or willing to, support the needs of children. To display anger, fear, or sorrow was a personal weakness. But to do so when coerced by the devil was perfectly acceptable. So they acted out, became hysterical. And claimed the devil was behind it all.
That may not be as exciting as the, “but they ate this spore, right? and it was like a bad trip on LSD!” but it’s almost certainly correct. 

THIS COMMENTARY I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE THIS FOR YEARS.

THIS COMMENTARY. Yes. Yessssss. 


 I just thought they looked like the remaining immortal witches that escaped the carnage finally returning to mourn their fallen sisters and commemorate their victory as survivors, but I guess this was a learning experience for us all.

*colour means nothing* (except the fact that PoC are socially, economically and politically marginalised from the moment they enter society because of their race, colour or ethnicity)  *we’re all human* (although PoC are constantly dehumanised, under-represented and their humanity constantly challenged by systematic racism thoroughly ingrained into our social consciousness) Iggy is disgusting.

AKA, I’m not racist, because I’m fucking a black dude and he lets me call him “my nigga”. 

When will people realize that ‘colorblindness’ isn’t a solution for racism, it’s just another way to erase the experiences of POC?


If color didn’t matter, you wouldn’t need to point out that this is your black friend to prove a point.

 SHE’S MAKING A STAND FOR RACIAL EQUALITY WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE DO YOU PUNCH KIDS THAT EQUALLY ENJOY WHITE CHOCOLATE AND DARK CHOCOLATE LIKE ‘NO THE DIFFERENCES ARE THE BEST PART’ WHAT THE FUCK NOBODY SAID THEY WEREN’T

what really scares me is that i’m average i’m not really good at anything or really beautiful i’m going to live an average life with an average job an average income and die an average death with an average funeral and nobody is going to remember me

That is really, really inspiring, actually.

Guys get morning wood because our bladders fill up during the night and begin to press against our prostate, causing arousal. Our dicks don’t just feel the sun coming up and think “My time has come”


 Yes, but you still have ‘night’ at different times around the world.
Twelve men at sufficiently spaced latitude/longtitude coordinates who wake up at seven every morning don’t actually get up at the same time- Different cause, same result.
Hence, international boner wave.

Holy FRICKING fishsticks
every damn movie, comic, novel, tv series, and music video has a diverse range of men and THE SAME TWO FUCKING WOMEN either stereotypically hot and useless or hot and ‘tough girl’,
And the SECOND a parody comes out meant to display how ridiculous it is by portraying a diverse female group objectifying a single token male character

"Men do this to women and it’s ‘Wrong’, but women do it to a man and it’s art. Hypocrites."
“TWO WRONGS DON’T MAKE A RIGHT”
“Fuck that’s hot I wanna be him”

YOU ARE MISSING THE POINT

IT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOSING A GAME OF MONOPOLY AND ACTUALLY BEING REPEATEDLY MUGGED and IT’S NOT FUN
